About Me

With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

Quilt - a gift from Bev to Pat

"It's the thought that counts" the saying goes. But no, if you don't buy your mother a Mother's day present, it won't do to just say "I thought about it Mum, and it's the thought that counts!"
It's not that I'm after presents... hang on, that's a lie, I LOVE presents! It's just that I feel it's important to teach my kids the value of giving to others. The giving is all the more meaningful when some thought, care and effort has gone into the gift.

Which brings me to this week's "Show 'n Tell"...

 Bev I. and Jocelyn made this lovely quilt for Pat L for a special birthday.
Wow, what love and care and thought went into that!

To top it off, there is a great label on the back. All handmade must have a label!

Well done Bev and Jocelyn, you are SO thoughtful! 
And enjoy your lovely quilt Pat. We all know that you are really only 60 with a few years experience!

This reminds me of the lovely quilt that Jenni made me for my birthday!


  1. I wrote a comment on your insecure feeling about your blog of June 4th.
    Again, I love to visit your blog. To-day I red about your trip to Holland which is my homeland, and about the death of your Mum-in-law.....tears in my eyes. Go on, please.
    Love, Rya Lucas

  2. Hi Rya, thanks for the comments and I'm glad you were touched by my lovely mother-in-law.
    Blessings, Diana.


I LOVE to have your comments and will try to answer questions as best I can.
